Sunday is Kids Day at Comic-Con. If I were there this week (and time travel were possible), I might take my son to this event.
How to Toon: Kids Cartooning Class Sunday, July 26th, 3:00-4:00— Joe Wos, a resident cartoonist of the Charles M. Schulz Museum and executive director of the ToonSeum in Pittsburgh, PA, offers a hands-on cartooning basics workshop for children of all ages. Room 30CDE.
Fortunately for us Comic-Clone participants, I teach a Cartooning class for kids every Sunday at Art Center. And I drew this comic strip to synopsize the syllabus for my students.
You can use this strip as your own mini-workshop and, if you need a little inspiration, you can find a selection of my students’ comics in my Sunday Funnies set on flickr.
It’s worth advertising that most art schools offer wonderful workshops to their communities. Art Center for Kids (in Pasadena) even welcomes parents for free when their children enroll. It’s a nice reversal of the usual “Kids ride free” deal!
